Cutesie texts from James that made me happier than it really should have.

The vulva workshop. Such a lovely small group with really great conversations and some good laughs.

The beautiful pink clouds and blue sky as I walked home.

A lunch with Lou. Chatting bisexuality and mental health. It feels really nice to have made a new friend. And to feel really justified in my feelings about bisexual dating.

Silly cardboard comedy in the basement of a pub.

A second date with James. I think I might quite like him.

Yoga in dungarees.

Reading in dungarees.

Having someone to do the little texts with again.

Cheering on Jonny at the Hackney Half. So glad I saw him.

A fun date with James. Lots of laughing.

Walking home with a beautiful sky and good music.

Stuart rang after I told him. That was nice.

James being very sweet when I canceled the date and enthusiastic about rearranging.

Vangie’s exit. Again.

Lee complimented me on my dungarees by the printer. And then was suitably impressed when I told him I’d made them.

My ballsy OkCupid move. Didn’t work but it made me feel very powerful.

Some good love on the apps today.

Wearing my new dungarees to work. I love wearing them!

First lying on my back lunch in the park of the year.

Chatting crap dating profiles with my old friends.

Seeing our new pot up on the shelf. Such a happy little fella.

Eating cake. Two cakes.

OkCupid messages.

Some ridiculous dating profiles out there today

No Country For Young Women as I walked in the sun

The end of yoga. So relaxed. Never wanted to move.

A super easy smear test with a brilliant nurse.

Liv ringing me because Vera started her period!

A fun date with Veli where I didn’t notice the time passing. Lots of chats and laughter and flirting.

Using the ULEZ as an opener on Hinge. And it worked!

Evening plans cancelled. Hello sofa and pyjamas.

Bizarrely, listening to chat about feminism in The Archers on Women’s Hour.

How neat and smooth my bed looked this morning

My flowers from Roger

A funny date with Chris

Quiet coffee with Becky during work hours

The adorable fluffy dog outside the school. Before the scruffy dog ran away….

A sober date with the hottest man I’ve ever dated.

Colleague free day. So, home after lunch to masturbate and lie around on the sofa.

Finally got dinner at the Soho Mildred’s. Found out Mildred was a prostitute.

‘Did you just “amirite” me?’ Glyn

Text lols with Han, talking poo and trying to word the perfect reply to Exploring Uranus.

Lesbian lols in the kitchen at the end of the work day.

Archery.

Mornings on my own in the flat.

Lots of dating activity. Went on one whilst arranging another. And got asked on another (although I feel bad about that one)

Scrambled tofu. First time. Loved it.

The light, walking home at half 2. It’s so beautiful in winter.

Talking masturbation with an unknown Irishman on Hinge.

Dance aerobics. Smiles throughout.

Aaaaand playing Dobble and Floundering with Dom and Jonny

Dinner. Eating all the right things. Come on guts, let’s do this.

Lots of OKC messages. Must be doing something a lot better this time.

Finishing the course and being a trained Mental Health First Aider. That feels good.


New toaster. She’s a beauty.

Making envelopes. It’s nice to be crafty.

A fun first date. 


Seeing the early morning sky, with the sun peaking up, orangey-yellow, through the clouds.

Getting asked on a date.

Standing by the tube intersection door and getting the breeze all up in my hair. I love that feeling.

(I don’t have any photos that fit this. But I was sad that I didn’t use this fish photo the other day. So I’m putting it in. It’s my blog anyway and I can do what I want)


Having someone to message on OKCupid.

Getting things done. When I’m busy I get a bit frantic but I enjoy it. Mostly. Me, Gust and Jen had some good moments today, getting our training ready together.

Ciaran’s story about the woman who drank soap. And wants to feed her kids conkers.


Yoga. Distracting, stretchy yoga.

Grace and Frankie. Especially the vagina chat. Yas queens. Then when I was searching for a photo for this blog I discovered that Frankie does vagina artwork. God I love her. This is one of my favourite pieces by Frankie Bergstein.

Hearing from J Lo. Bambee. Glad he’s keeping that going.


Delicious pizza at the pub quiz

Jo’s funny brother

A surprising flurry of OKCupid messages


Smashing out most of my application this evening. And it’s good!

Getting a message back, finally. And he’s into eco shit! Double win.

The cute old couple by the pond. In love, laughing and sat so close you couldn’t put a bit of paper between them.


Boobs song from Jen. “My vagina… Which is somewhere on my stomach”

Getting the report done. Almost there.

A night with Matt, watching pottery and doing online dating on the sofa.


A pretty successful OKCupid conversation.

Working from home so I could be snotty by myself. And then getting to hang out with Becky for milkshake breaks and home made ginger and lemon tea.

Quiz night with Jonny. It’s the last time I’m going to see him for a month or so which is definitely not something to smile about. But it was a fun night. Never been upstairs in the Island Queen before.

Did a bit more carving on my bowl. It’s smoother now. And I finally got to use a curved knife.

Set up OKCupid. And currently don’t feel bad about any of it.

Made a great soup. Yes to Sunday cooking.  


I did it. I went on my first ever first date. Tick that off the list.

The seagull dinosaur fact. Ridiculous. Possibly true.

The lovely letter from Claire. Such a cutie.

Loling at Ciaran on the tube

Finding him on Bumble. And a text or two.

An actual productive day. With a delicious lunch.

‚ÄčA delicious lunch with a beautiful-skinned mackerel.

Bumbling for 45 minutes with Ismay and Claudia rather than actually doing work.

Walking across London (past random bands in fancy guard uniforms) to eat an ice cream on the canal. After making myself dinner in someone else’s house.
